On demand businesses require high availability and SAMP (Tivoli System Automation for Multi platforms) addresses pain points such as:
- Application availability
- Complexity and operations costs
- Automation implementation and maintenance costs
- Education requirements related to automation
- Rapid changes to an IT landscape
SAMP overcomes these problems through policy-based automation that supports grouping of resources and relationships. SAMP can do this in environments where applications run on diverse platforms. SAMP helps you to remain competitive, flexible, and responsive to operate in a cost effective manner.
SAMP provides high availability and policy-based automation for applications and services across heterogeneous environments. It ensures continuous high availability and reduces frequency and duration of service disruptions for critical applications and middle ware running on heterogeneous platforms and virtualization technologies.
Tivoli System Automation for Multi platforms is a high-availability cluster solution that provides several monitoring mechanisms to detect system failures and a set of rules to initiate the correct action without any user intervention. The set of rules is called a policy, This policy describes the relationships between applications or resources. This provides System Automation for Multi platforms with extensive up-to-date information about the system landscape so that it can restart the resource on the current node or move the whole application to another cluster node.
